But then I worried if I didn't include it in the profile, I would feel like I was lying.
I tried putting it in my profile and taking it out in an attempt to feel out what was the best thing to do and what felt right to me as a person.
I never did that in an attempt to deceptive, I just wanted people to get to know me as a person and not me as a person in a wheelchair.
In my everyday life, I so often feel like people treat me differently when they find out I'm disabled.
I work in PR and most of my clients are far away and most of them don't know about my disability and I'm happy about that because I want them to expect the same things from me that they would expect from any other publicist.

When I first set up my Tinder profile, I wasn't sure if I should make my disability super obvious in my photos.
I originally thought I should, but then my friends told me I didn't have to do that if I didn't want to because my disability doesn't impact the type of activities I'm into, or who I am, or even my day to day.
The first Tinder date I went on, I didn't tell the guy that I was disabled before we got together.
